VOLUME 11. NUMBER 17. CHURCH CALENDAR FOR MAY- 29. S. aft. Ascension. PATHWAYS TO OUR CHURCH- The Study of History.—One of the most interesting incidents in the early history of Yale College was the presentation of a document to the trustees, signed by some of the professors. This document recited the fact that the signers "labored under difficulties in keeping out of the visible communion of the Episcopal Church." Their honest statement of the result of their reading may describe very accurately the condition of many other readers and students to-day. They "labor under difficulties in keeping out of the Episcopal Church" whenever they read enough to grasp the fact of the historic continuity of this Church, and the importance of that fact. When "historic continuity" is spoken of, we mean that this is a true branch of the Apostolic Church; that it was not founded a few years ago, but that it has a continuous history, reaching back through all the Christian centuries to the days of th...

©fiwreft Rears. FLORIDA. «t. Peter's church, key west. GOOD FRIDAY. The three hours passion service on Good Friday was conducted with the usual solemnity by the Rev. S. Kerr, A.8., the rector, who told the fctory of the Cross with his accustomed earnestness and force. The crowded congregation was deeply affected and went away feeling good to be there. The sermon preached was from "The seven last words of Jesus on the Cross." The day wore an appearance of sadness—the church was <lraped in mourning. EASTER. The weather was fine, the gladdened sky dissipated the gloom of the Crucifix and the shadow of the •Cross, telling of the Risen Lord.

Hitherto it had been dangerous to defy the Pope, but now the nation arose and declared that he had no authority over Englishmen; in matters secular or religious. The nation was in this movement." Out of 9,400 clergymen all but 189 gladly welcomed the return to ancient privileges and traditions." The people generally attended the parish churches as usual.

©Kiansfi Retug. MASSACHUSETTS. Boston.—S. Augustine's church, "which was almost completed when Fr, Hall left for England, has been open and in use since Christmas. It was to have been formally opened by the Bishop of the Diocese on the Feast of the Epiphany, but, owing to his illness, the ceremony had to be deferred. We note with satisfaction the very considerable increase in the sums given through the offertory since Lent began. The colored people evidently intend to do what they can tp make the church self-supporting. We feel, however, that as this is the only Episcopal Church in Boston especially designed for colored people, it ought to receive an adequate support from church people throughout the city and diocese. It is not right that it should be left as a financial burden to the Mission Church of S. John the Evangelist, which has from the beginning done much to aid the work both pecuniarily and through the ministrations of its clergy and the Sisters of S. Margaret.—From the Re...

The Reception of the Church Idea.—"One thing that makes me love this Church," said a sailor's wife, "is that it always has a prayer for those who travel by land and by water. So it is a comfort to me to go where my sailor-husband is remembered as he sails across the great waters." She realized the comfort of being in a family where the needs of each member were thought worthy of being prayed for. DeQuinccy used to say that whenever they came to that petition in the Litany, "For all sick persons and young children,' he thought of the little sister, whose couch of suffering was part of his earliest recollections. An English writer has put this thought of the Church's care and solicitude very forcibly in these words: "She takes to herself a...

NEGRO PROGRESS SOUTH. A special dispatch to the New York Mail and Express from Tuskegee, Ala., gives a very interesting account of the commencement exercises of the Normal and Industrial Institute at that place.

He was told that he must meet the committee to be examined as to his beliefs. The examination had not progressed far befoie the candidate demurred at the nature of the questions they were putting to him. Said he: "I am not a theologian, and so cannot say whether or not I heartily believe these propositions which you quote from your Confession of Faith. I do believe the facts of Christianity, but I do not know whether all these supposed deductions are correct or not." The examiners were not satisfied. He must accept these involved theological propositions, or he couzd not coma into the membership of their body. Happily his attention w...

©fifcirefi foetus. An English clergyman and his wife, in Cardigan, have just celebrated their seventieth wedding anniversary. The Rev. John N. Stansbury, who was prominent in the Diocese of Newark, died in that city, after a long illness. The report that the Bishop ot Indiana is dangerously ill,is happily denied by the Bishop himselt. Strange how such reports spread. The convention of the Diocese of Virginia voted to divide the diocese on nearly the lines reported by the committee. We learn with great regret that the Bishop of South Carolina has received a stroke of paralysis, and that he is in a very dangerous condition. His death at this time would be a great loss to his Diocese. The Rev. Dr. Hale has signified his acceptance of the election to the Diocese of Springfield as Assistant Bishop. His credentials must go before the General Convention, before order can be taken for his consecration The Commission on Work among the Colored People has appointed the Rev. W. V. Tunnell, prof...

Thomas K. Beecher when we would put into popular phrase what may be said about our Prayer Book. "It is the most venerable Liturgy in the English tongue," he said. "There is no religious form book that can stand for a moment in comparison with the Prayer Book of the Episcopal Church. You will rarely hear in any church a prayer spoken in English that is not indebted to this Prayer Book for some of its choicest phrases. I doubt that life has in store for any of you an uplift so high or downfall so deep, but that you can find company for your soul and fitting words for your lips among the treasure of this Book of Common Prayer." The people of a certain congregation were deeply interested in the prayers of their minister. On one occasion some of them declared that they had never heard anything so s...
